Weekly Meal Planning, Week of 6.11.12
I think I'm going to have to start sleeping with a notebook and pen by my bed. I went to bed on Friday night with lots of different meal ideas floating around in my mind...but when I woke up on Saturday morning and had to plan our menu before I went grocery shopping, every single one of those ideas was gone.
Thankfully, I brainstormed with Joe and the boys, and between the four of us, we were able to come up with some delicious meals for this week. But still. Come on, mind! Start remembering stuff!
Monday: Chicken parmesan pasta. Andrew said he wanted pasta with chicken and red sauce, so this fits the bill perfectly.
Tuesday: Taco rice. This one is always a hit.
Wednesday: Grilled chicken Caesar salad. I made grilled chicken Caesar flatbreads last week that were absolutely fantastic (I'll post the recipe this week), and this is basically the same thing, minus the flatbreads. Joe loved it so much he requested it again this week.
Thursday: Joe has a softball game. The boys and I will probably have sandwiches before heading off on our weekly Thursday night adventure.
Friday: Bacon cheeseburgers and fries. I have all of the ingredients on hand, so there's just no way I can resist.
Saturday: Peach pecan chicken sandwiches with jalapeno mayonnaise. Will requested "peachies" this week (he's on a peach kick lately), so I think he'll enjoy this meal. I'll leave the spicy mayo off the boys' sandwiches, of course.
Sunday: Maple sausage and waffle breakfast casserole. The boys requested breakfast for dinner, and since I've been thinking about this delicious casserole a lot lately, I thought it would be the perfect choice for Sunday dinner.
